SGV Counts! Bike sgv data collection project
BikeSGV needs your help!
On April 1st, from 9am to 3pm, you or your group can sign up to complete a manual bike and pedestrian count OR conduct a street audit! You can count alone or in a pair or audit with friends, all ages are welcome. Youth under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Youth 16-18 years old must be in pairs.
What is a manual bike and pedestrian count!?
Volunteers are stationed at a location and they count the people walking and biking by.
What is a street audit?!
Volunteers walk or bike along a street and document what they see. Lighting, shade, safe sidewalks, etc.
All volunteers will get a free SGVCounts! T-shirt and lunch!
1. Fill out the form below
2. Come to training on the morning of April 1st (additional training dates and locations will be available to folks counting in the far west and east SGV)
3. Count or audit on April 1st from 11 am to 1 pm
4. Come back to BikeSGV Headquarters in El Monte, turn in your forms and celebrate with lunch, raffles and giveaways!
What is the Bikesgv Data collection effort?
In many parts of the San Gabriel Valley, little is known about how many people walk and bike on city streets. This lack of data hinders planning on where and how streets should be improved. It also limits our ability to measure the success of projects such as new bicycle lanes.
SGV Counts! is a two-year pilot project to begin filling some of the gaps in walking and bicycling data in the San Gabriel Valley. Data that is collected is made available to cities who can use it to apply for funding for projects like bike lanes, greenways and educational safety classes. With real data about who is walking and biking, cities' applications for funding are substantially stronger.
There are so many opportunities for you to get involved after the April 1st SGV Counts! Volunteer Day.
You can join the team and help us with:
- data entry
- bike parking audits
-weekday and weekend manual bike and pedestrian counts
